CARDIGAN. ILLICIT MALT. As is usually in this neighbourhood, the approach of winter season brings an increase of the smuggled malt business, and an additional inducement now arises from the high prices at which the licensed dealers retail their commodity. There is no doubt that illicit malting is greatly increasing notwithstanding the efforts of the officers.
